New York Harbor on New Year’s Eve
Feliz Año Nuevo! Bonne Année! 新年快乐! Shanah Tovah! Happy New Year! People from all over the world gather to holiday shop, stroll through markets, window peep, ice skate, and take pictures with the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center. There’s no doubt that this is one of the busiest times of the year in New York City, and the festivities continue through New Year’s Eve as all eyes are on Times Square on December 31st. Believe it or not, many New Yorkers and NYC visitors are not crowd goers. For those of you looking for an exclusive and elegant celebration this New Year’s Eve, we invite you to join us at Classic Harbor Line.
Back by popular demand, our NYE Cruise is the perfect way to get your party on aboard 1920s-style classic yacht Manhattan II. Wear something chic and glamorous (the boat is heated), bring your significant other and favorite couple, or grab your besties for the ultimate celebration.
We’ll take care of chilling the Champagne, decorating the boat, party favors, music, food, and beverages. You’ll just need to show up looking fabulous and ready to enjoy a memorable evening cruising around New York Harbor as you watch the city lights sparkle.
We’ll start the night off by welcoming guests aboard with a glass of bubbly, followed by a short Champagne tasting. During the tasting, enjoy artisan cheeses, charcuterie, smoked salmon, olives, gourmet flatbreads, and more, followed by some decadent passed hors d’oeuvres.
From Chelsea Piers, the boat will cruise by lower Manhattan and Ellis Island toward the Statue of Liberty where you’ll have the best seat in the house for the NYE fireworks show. Party on as our Live Jazz Trio the ‘Boat Band’ plays some holiday classics and cover hits. Hop on the dance floor or sway to the music at your table. As midnight approaches, we’ll do a final countdown, and you’ll raise your glass to a prosperous and healthy New Year!
A Note about the Author:
Meg Yeiter: Meg grew up and went to college in Michigan. After graduation, she did what any 21-year-old with a degree and no job would do – move to a mountain town to spend all day skiing fresh powder and afternoons clinking glasses at chic après ski lodges. Just kidding, she moved to Park City, Utah, where she got her first journalism job as a reporter at the local newspaper and borrowed her friends ski’s to hit the slopes a few times a month. Meg has always had a passion for traveling and the outdoors. She moved to New York City in early 2015. During her first year here, Meg found herself consistently running to Classic Harbor Line to catch an evening sunset sail. She officially joined the Classic Harbor Line team in April 2016 and now no longer needs to run anywhere. In her free time, Meg enjoys exploring New England, repurposing furniture, and sailing of course.
